Shifting payer rules, rampant regulatory changes, bundle payments... who's keeping up?

We are. And we’re doing so for you. Your payer mix, staffing issues, denial rates, revenue cycle KPIs — or whatever is keeping you up at night — it’s all familiar territory for us. More than just “having your back,” when it comes to running your back office, we resolve, improve, and deliver revenue results you’ll see at your bottom line.

The Challenge

The sheer volume of patients carrying some form of insurance is on the rise, as are multiple, varied plans available. Meanwhile, regulatory shifts are breeding uncertainty, and payers are continually changing their rules.  In this environment, the strategy you set for insurance A/R follow-up must be nimble and dynamic, as it is more essential to your revenue stream than ever before.

What’s your impending insurance A/R follow-up need?

  • Ongoing insurance resolution
  • Insurance resolution projects defined by age or payer
  • Denials management and prevention

The Solution

Let’s get your claims paid right

You may be singularly focused on your bottom line. Maybe you're beyond-frustrated with a payer or always short-staffed. Or maybe you're working hard to identify where you can gain greater efficiency and cost control.

The processes, people and performance we bring to your insurance A/R follow-up will both scale and speed your claims resolution, sparing you from heavy tech investments, supplementing your staff, and delivering additional benefits that stretch far past your total revenue.

 

Let’s do more than manage denials – let’s prevent them

Denials are inevitable. Yet with the right combination of technology and work prioritization, identifying trends and truly mastering the capabilities of your patient accounting system, your clean claim rate can meet best practice standards.
